The Mississippi Court of Appeals has rejected the post-conviction claim of a Meridian man convicted in a Kemper County murder in 1999.

David Martin Robert is serving life without parole for the murder of Lakel Cross, who was shot six times. It happened outside a Porterville night club.

Robert was convicted by a Kemper County jury in 2000, but he argued that his lawyer should have done a better job.

The court ruled Tuesday that his lawyer made some mistakes, but they did not affect the trial's outcome.
